I am using this guide but it looks to be out of date?https://wpdatatables.com/faqmd/can-change-position-column-filters/
I can't see how to make filters at the top of the table and NOT the footer.
The only option is on / off or in a form but there is no way to move them to the top
I want to do this also because you are using drop down instead of drop up which makes the dropdown hidden when in scrolling table - see error here -
Wait i found it! setting is GLOBAL and not per table. thanks
Thank you for reaching out to us.
You can choose the position of the filters in the general wpDataTables settings like shown on the image below
To display the filters on top of the table please navigate to the Sorting and filtering tab in the table settings and turn on the Show filters in a form above the table as shown on the image below.
I hope this helps, please don't hesitate to contact us if there is anything else we can assist you with.
